Chances are, when you did your ultrasound it was the umbilical cord that was seen and not a penis. The 2 are very easily mistaken.

Yes, it is certainly accurate. You can generally find out between 4.5-6 months of pregnancy. If you have a talented radiologist that just makes it all the more easy for you to get a more accurate idea of the sex of the baby.

This is the most common time to be able to tell the baby's sex. Before this there is not much dirrerence between the sexes, and after this other parts of the baby get in the way as there is not so much room. However you may have a coy baby who will not reveal its sex no matter how good the scan.

Is ultrasound scan accurate to reveal sex of baby at week 16?

An ultrasound scan at week 16 is most probably accurate compared to earlier scans. This is because even at week 15, the baby has already formed its organs and certain body parts. That is why at week 15 or 16, you can already have your baby's gender checked. In fact, you can even make that check up at week 16 more memorable. You can opt for a center where you can have a 4d baby scan of your unborn child. Then, you can get two photos of your baby's scans plus a filmed record of the ultrasound itself in a DVD. There's also a package with a disc and another with both DVD and USB. That way, you can say that the gender check is worth it!
